    Ronaldo captain + "Very differential" on LiveFPL. Massive red awaited!

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Unless he scores, which he likely does.

    2. Nomar

      Will probably work and all us Salah clappers end up with nothing.

    3. Scots Gooner

      Good luck. Fortune favours the brave.

    Me clinging on to Vardy reminds me of owning Sterling for God knows how many GWs last season, don't know when to give up

      Fixtures after Chelsea are tasty

    2. THFC4LIFE

      I’m giving him the Watford game

      1. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        That's probably wise, thinking of moving him down to Jesus if doesn't get anything that week

        1. THFC4LIFE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Yeah thinking something similar

    Kane moved up a lot!

    1. I Member

      Didn't expect Son to still be such a big differential.

      1. Yozzer
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Why? He's been poor. I'm surprised Kane is so high.

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Me neither. I would have thought him and Kane to have quite similar ownership. Easy games during itb and English player, probably same thing as with MU assets. When they show some form, hype is big.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Got 10 of the Top 12 outfield players. Guess I'm Top 10K template.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        I have 11/14 of top 14 players, only Kane, Foden and Mbeumo missing. At least I saved my ft this week, so I can make argument that template is trying to copy my team 😉

    Crazy to play White (NEW) over Antonio (mci) next week? Quite a few in my mini league have Ramsdale and I don't.

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      If it goes right you make maybe 4 points… so it’s the not the biggest of carrots to chase after

      With Antonio, it can go hugely wrong too though, and if he even sneaks an assist then it’s scuppered

      Wouldn’t be a move for me, but nothing to say it can’t work out either

      If you have Ramsdale I’d certainly be steering away from it

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Don't have Ramsdale. Wouldn't even be considering it if I did.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Not at all. I plan to bench Antonio.

    3. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      I am thinking about starting Hwang (Norwich) over Antonio.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        I would definitely do that.

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Weirdly he did actually score against Man City in both games last season!

    5. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Antonio has scored against Man City the last two times he's played them.

      Would argue West Ham are even better now than then too.

      I'll be starting Antonio.

      You'll see if Newcastle look more attacking this week too (although Howe not in dugout).

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        That I had totally forgotten.

    6. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Not at all. White more likely to get cs than Antonio to score or assist imho. Probaby 2-2, but worth trying imo. And even if Whu scores, it could easily be from corner and without Antonio involvement.

    7. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      The mistake is people thinking West Ham are still a mid table club. They can score against anyone now. And antonio scored in both games against City last year.

  8. dark91
    • 5 Years
    11 days, 1 hour ago

    Mount starting is good or bad news for Havertz?

  9. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    11 days, 1 hour ago

    As expected Salah EO pretty scary for non-cappers. If you didn't cap him, who's your captain?

    I went for Cancelo, due to Everton being fairly toothless plus the fact he's producing some nice attacking returns lately.

    Will be terrified watching Salah as both an Arsenal fan and non-capper though.

    1. lordkippe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      I went for Kane. Hoping he gets going under Conte and even though Leeds have been more solid their defenders is not top quality and could be leaky on the right day.

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        A good shout. You're ahead of the curve if Spurs start firing this week, which they inevitably will under Conte.

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Ronaldo

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Good shout.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Like the brave Cancelo pick! I pretty much never cap a defender and don’t trust Pep, but they have the best CS odds this week and he actually is joint 1st alongside Mo for most shots over the last 4 GWs.

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Usually my brave moves end in disaster, so half expecting a rest and 10 mins off the bench.

        At the same time CS + assist isn't too much to ask.

    4. Grounderz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Kane. This is the week to try out a differential captain. Counting on Arsenal to stop Salah/Liverpool.

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        I think it's a good week to be brave.

        You're only severely punished if Salah performs as he did vs United.

    5. Hot Toddy
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Son. My (c) plan sees me going with Salah about half the time over the next 8 gwks including this one.

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Hope you're successful as I've got Son in my team too.

    6. lugs
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Son

    7. Hiiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Ronaldo.

  10. Hiiler
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    11 days, 1 hour ago

    Probably first time going against the majority and captained Ronaldo. Have Salah too though like most. Will have a stressful few hours today. Watching liverpool and Man United games.

  11. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    11 days, 1 hour ago

    Havertz massive haul today. Mark my words!

  12. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 days, 17 hours ago

    68 with Son and Foden to go. It will do.
